Six reasons agents are not extinct in South Florida!

Six reasons agents are not extinct in South Florida!

Whether you are looking to make South Florida your permanent home, or are planning a seasonal residency, you might be interested to find out a little more about why a good REALTOR® is needed now more than ever.

In a recent article posted on® by Craig Donofrio, the article mentions, “It’s 2016, and it seems our need for real live people is ever-diminishing.  There’s self-checkout instead of cashiers, selfie sticks instead of photographers, self-driving cars, self-watering plants, self-administered colonoscopies … well, you get the idea.  Given that technology has become so important to buying and selling homes, you’d also think real estate agents would be a dying breed—yet they aren’t showing any signs of slowing down, with approximately 2 million active real estate agents throughout the country.

Donofrio lists why Real Estate agents aren’t extinct:

Reason No. 1: Selling is complicated

Reason No. 2: Buying ain’t easy, either

Reason No. 3: It’s their top priority

Reason No. 4: They know the market, and the players, better than you

Reason No. 5: They’re objective

Reason No. 6: The cost is worth it

Nowhere in the country can the expertise of these agents be more valuable than in an area of gated communities and private coastal hamlets in South Florida.  As tourists and snowbirds flock to our locality, visitors often become curious about the South Florida lifestyle, and seriously consider relocation.  Therefore, whether the initial inquiry is a drive-by or Google® search, potentially new South Floridians seek out the expertise of the very best super-sleuths to assist with his or her home search.
